"I Googled Vericomm today and read your letter to the Senator," he said.
"Yeah it's good."
"Thanks, I know."
"Well... they did the same thing to me but it was Merchant Services instead..... I owned all of my equipment already and had a good deal with Bank America. But Fiona told me there was no contract and that the equipment was free except that I had to use their machines.... I thought I signed an application and they must have filled it in afterward and they never gave me a copy."
Sounds oh-so-familiar, as I told Nashua Lieutenant Tim Goulden when he called me at lunch today. Meanwhile, former Vericomm sales rep Calvin Francis called me and promised to email me proof that other local area merchants are satisfied with the services. I promised him I would post any counterpoint he has right here on this blawg.
Mr. Kang and I had a wonderful conversation last night as I explained my favorite legal case of all time, as noted in this post: Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356 (1886), which involved unlawful discrimination against Asians in San Francisco. I told him about how Asians helped employ and raise my father and his siblings at the dry cleaner's. And I told him about the KingCast videos, where one may see Lieutenant Goulden and me have a little rap session in the "Day in Nashua" video.
Meanwhile, Mr. Kang will be depositing this blawg and its entries with the California Attorney General's office and I will do the same for him here in New Hampshire so we can get it all properly cross-referenced.
And then there is the Hobbs Act, 18 U.S.C. 1951.
PS: Googling worked well for the First Amendment in Nashua, as Alderman Teeboom discovered when he found me and we changed First Amendment Policy for the better, and we're still working on that matter on the State level.
